Nice place with a beautiful view.
Was a very nice stay with awesome views sitting on the andirondaks. Continental breakfast was very nice. A little dissapointed the bar and restaurant was not open. Also, the 7:15am mowing woke us. But, all in all nice place. Because it is an old mansion there are only stairs up 2 flights. Did get help with our luggage. There was a wedding and reception going on while we stayed.

Not what internet shows
The pictures on the website especially the Safari Room for dinner are absolutely inaccurate. Our breakfast was in that room with a few tables and coffee, bagels, cereal, small danishes which I discovered an ant crawling on. Breakfast was only from 8-9:30 am. A very short amount of time. Our room which was incredibly small so much so that you couldn’t completely open the bathroom door fully because it would hit the toilet. The room was frozen one minute and then no air the next. When we asked why that occurs we were told they run on one central air system so when one guests says it is too cold they turn it off and then if another complains it too hot they turn it back on. Ludicrous. We had dinner 1 evening in the Safari Room expecting the photos on the internet but that beautiful room with the long bar isn’t even used. We were put under cover in a smaller outdoor area. Pricey and small portions for entrees. Salad was a good size. Lastly the internet shows a pool. We brought swimsuits etc.. but they do not have a pool of any kind. That is the property next door. Don’t waste your time or money staying here. There are plenty more places with amenities one would expect while on vacation. We only stayed 2 nights and moved on.

Nice view but not quite a hotel vibe
The hotel is beautiful and the view of the water out back is great. However upon arrival the room was smaller than anticipated and there were no towels provided (hand or body). After requesting towels they said there was not enough body towels so they brought us extra hand towels to use if we showered. Overall great trip but not as clean or tidy as a regular hotel or a hotel that would be as expensive as staying here.

Beautiful views and sunsets
Beautiful place just wish tv and outlets were better. Chargers didn’t stay plugged in. Light would go off.

You must call the front desk to request heating or air in your room. We did so, but room remained stuffy all night. I asked 2 different people at front desk for directions and neither could answer as neither were from the area. We tried to reserve a table for dinner upon arriving, but as a reception was being held on site, there was not enough seating available for hotel guests. Bartenders were great to us, after being overrun by reception attendees.

Great time.
Great room and we enjoy the premises. The hotel seemed unfurnished and since it’s an old building it has hotel controlled air. We had windows open and the yard work machine started at 7 pm. Other than that the safari room is fantastic and great energetic bar manager and support.
